Olympic horse riders

fair-winds-and-all-i-see: Happy horse, happy rider. Our London 2012 gold medalist and her amazing horse. I love the story of Charlotte and Valegro. Carl Hester is a champion, too. He took Charlotte under his wing and let her ride his horse to victory. He said he knew Valegro could win a gold medal. He knew Charlotte would be the rider to get it. She has said she owes everything to him. What a great team.

Also the rider's age is not a problem. In London Olympics the oldest participant was a Japanese dressage rider, 70-and-some years. Youngest rider was probably 19...
